Utilization Review - Providers

Focused Professional Practice Evaluation (FPPE)

Focused Professional Practice Evaluation (FPPE)  Peer Review is used to make final judgments about quality of care in many quality assurance activities.   Focused Professional Practice Evaluation (FPPE) is the follow up process to ensure that there is sufficient information available to evaluate a practitioner’s competence.  FPPE is needed at the time of initial credentialing, as a result of the data evaluated during OPPE, and when additional data or reports indicate the need for a focused review of adverse events.

Example

Typically rural hospitals, smaller regional delivery networks, and large physician specialty organizations will source this function to SFUR.

In rural areas, there are are not enough physicians of the same specialty to provide these reviews. In other settings, physicians feel more comfortable sourcing out this review function to non-biased external physicians rather than their peers that they have to interact with on a daily basis.
